What did you dream you would be when you grew up? Well, a few different things. In third grade we went to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and I wanted to be an astronaut. Then when I was older and started babysitting, I thought I wanted to be a teacher.

Is there any one book, person, place or thing that has influenced you the most? My dad! He was the kindest person I have ever known. He was smart, funny, and incredibly supportive no matter what I did!

What excites you about the agency business & marketing? Being able to build relationships with my clients and help deliver on their business needs and goals.

Where did you grow up? Fun Fact: I was actually born in Canada and have dual citizenship. My family moved to Florida when I was two and lived there for eight years before moving to the Cleveland area, where I lived until I went to college.

Do you have any passion projects outside of Orchard? Nothing big, but I am trying to read and get outside more. I also like to try new restaurants + bars!

Describe your family (husband, dog, cat & bird….) I am not married and don’t have any kids yet! I think about getting a dog almost daily, so that will surely happen soon. ?
